Thanks so very much for all of the kind comments on the previous post. It's especially helpful to hear from others who've had similar experiences and I really appreciate all of the suggestions too. I'll be trying to reply to all of your comments over the next day or two.
Is it really the last day of November today? Considering that Christmas is always at the same time each year it really does have a way of sneaking up on a person. I need to get my act together and finish off all of the animals that I'm working on because it's getting awfully close to last posting dates.
I've been working on this little mouse today and she at least is now finished. Hopefully a few more of them will be ready soon. I'll keep you posted if you are interested.
